About the Publication


The Geoscience and Remote Sensing Section in IEEE Access covers theoretical, methodological, and experimental aspects of remote sensing applied to the observation of the Earth, Oceans, Atmosphere, and Space. The journal publishes original research results, application-oriented contributions, as well as new multidisciplinary operational approaches. High-quality review, survey, and tutorial articles on selected topics of interest for the Geoscience and Remote Sensing community are also welcome.


The Geoscience and Remote Sensing Section within IEEE Access will draw on the expert technical community to continue IEEE’s commitment to publishing the most highly-cited content. The review process is managed by a dedicated team of topical editors. The Journal publication process follows a binary peer-review model and targets a publication period of 6 weeks for most accepted papers. The journal is fully open and compliant with funder mandates, including Plan S.

Author Information and Instructions

To submit a paper, select the Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society Section from the pull-down menu of “Manuscript type” in the first page of the submission process.

The articles in this journal are peer-reviewed in accordance with the requirements set forth in the IEEE Publication Services and Products Board Operations.
